Ways to Cope with Unexplained Infertility

If you have been trying to have a baby for a year or more and there’s no evident health issue such as PCOS, blocked fallopian tubes, endometriosis, adenomyosis or such conditions, it’s time to alert yourself that you or your partner may be going through ‘unexplained infertility. Not to worry, as this does not mean that you won’t conceive, and thousands of other couples in this situation have naturally brought healthy babies to the world or with the assistance of fertility treatments.

What causes unexplained fertility?

The causes of unexplained infertility remain unknown. The most likely cause of this condition include:

• Ovulation issues

• Poor quality of eggs

• Poor sperm quality

• Insufficient frequency of sexual intercourse

• Intercourse that did not coincide with the fertility window

• Pelvic health issues, especially with the uterus or fallopian tubes

The Treatment Options

Popular treatment options for people facing unexplained infertility include:

Intrauterine insemination (IUI)

Sperms are washed and concentrated in this procedure and placed directly into the woman’s uterus during ovulation.


These pills help to stimulate the ovaries to release more eggs instead of just releasing a single egg. Doctors often use this in addition to IUI.

Timed intercourse

The couple diagnosed with unexplained infertility are advised to have intercourse that coincides with a woman’s ovulation. It is also recommended to have intercourse frequently.

Lifestyle changes

Women with unexplained infertility should never smoke, consume alcohol and maintain a healthy weight. A healthy lifestyle boosts fertility. Men should also focus on good lifestyle habits and learn more about holistic approaches to cope with unexplained infertility.

IVF treatment

In vitro fertilisation is the best treatment for unexplained infertility. When IVF is performed to conceive with unexplained infertility, there are several possibilities that it can help you achieve the desired result. However, experts don’t suggest to give a try to IVF until the other options haven’t been successful.

Should You Keep Trying?

Generally, trying to conceive naturally is a good approach, only for six months to one year. If you cannot get pregnant within this timeline, it is essential to know what makes it difficult and get the required tests and ultrasounds done as prescribed by your doctor. Based on your unique health profile, your doctor will discuss the possible options and help you choose the right path to achieve pregnancy. The good news is that it’s still possible to conceive with unexplained infertility, with the right approach at the right time!
